It is indeed the Thruster Trucky.

You have the thread.

PS: are you an ex-transport pilot?

More info on the Jag in the old challenge thread!

Not Muscat, but Thumrait. Whistling across the front of QB HAS to be precise, going North to South. Most of the Brit pilots had left by the time I got there in 97, and rules had been writted by then too. Low flying is sanctioned off the airbase and away from runways, down to 50 feet on a regular basis. No longer there Boo-Hoo;one of the best climates in the Middle-East. :sad

The jet is a Jaguar International S(O), which is the real designation of the single seaters. Two seaters are Jaguar International B(O)s

Can't post in the opther thread, it,s closed

HMM. Something's not right with those wing struts. Is there a unique feature to this aircraft wing?

I too a nap and dreamed we had the old thread still on. Now I have to determine if I am still asleep or awake .

The old thread had Coanda on page 31, by Brian.
